My Favorite Things: Jack's First Books

Okay because I'm an AWESOME blogger I posted exactly ONE favorite thing last week. So let's pretend that I am starting that this week, mmmkay? K.

These books were sent to me shortly after I got pregnant by my pal Michelle. Being the good pal that she is she knows how much I LOVE books. Obssessed with them really. And I fully intend to pass this love along to Jack. So Michelle sent me Jack's first books. I was so excited when I got them. I've already started reading them to him. Growing up loving books gave me such a great imagination in my opinion. To this day when I read a book I still can become a part of the story. And the books she sent are the GOOD one's! Thanks so much Michelle! These will be treasured!

My Favorite Things

So this week I'm going to show a few of my favorite things that reside in Casa de Bwildered. Once again, after cleaning out the junk room AKA baby room I came across a lot of things that I forgot I had and I love! So here's a little peek at the things that mean a lot to me.

This book was given to me by my dad the day before my wedding. Unknown to me he had been writing in it for years. There were places for him to write his favorite memories of me as a kid, what he felt and thought during different parts of my life, etc. It is such a beautiful book. To have something like this, written for me by my dad is so wonderful. Every time I read through it I cry. I'm going to have to give it back to him though to finish filling it out because it even has a place for him to talk about how he feels about me becoming a mother. What a wonderful keepsake. I want to find something like this for my baby.

Days With My Father

I found this link on Randi's blog I Have To Say. Days With My Father is a website set up by a Phillip Toledano that lived with his father the last three years of his father's life. The pictures are moving and the writing is so touching. It's a must read.

For Michelle

See, I'm not the only one. . .

Books to the ceiling,/ Books to the sky,/ My pile of books is a mile high./ How I love them! How I need them!/ I'll have a long beard by the time I read them.

A Conversation about Books AKA Obsession Revealed

ME: I need to find a way to get rich fast. FAST. SOON. PRONTO.
MAMASITA: You could dump some of your giant book collection.
ME: Have you lost your ever loving mind? I can't sell my friends!! I would be devastated and so would they. But its a nice thought if you aren't crazy like me.
MAMASITA: I think you may have a psychological problem with your attachment to books. Remember, PEOPLE are our friends. Books can't give us hugs.
ME: Watch it. They might hear you.
